One of my hobby sites is rangelistings.com, a site with the goal of providing a map of each state with the locations of shooting ranges on it. I keep an eye on the web traffic pretty regularly, and about 90% of the traffic it receives is from search engines.
Up till the last couple of weeks search engine generated traffic to the site has been 80 to 90 percent from Google’s search. Over the last month, overall traffic has increased from around 60 visits per day to around 90 per day. Where does it come from? Well, still search engines primarily, and traffic from Google has increased noticeably during this time.
However, to my surprise, Bing is also making a surprisingly strong showing. Click on the chart below to view the details.

Hey! I can’t seem to get bing to crawl my site, either that or they are very very behind on crawling 🙁
Hm. I didn’t do anything specific to trigger Bing to crawl rangelistings, it just happened. I am using a sitemap.xml and I think robots.txt, maybe that helped.
